Reading this remark, I recognize a connaisseur who can further benefit from this sartorial aspiration, when next he visits his tailor.
Some would rather read expressions of faith in the fantasies of rarity from advertising departments; others feel better educated by well-shaped prose on the nature of local bicycle races and sponsorship in provincial France (or anywhere else.)
I haven't visited here long enough to know which segment of the community will better appreciate the "fit" of the prose that follows to touchiness about the species of other skin 1-2 fabric layers away from his her privates.
Funny that umbrage has been taken to pig, when a premium price for a saddle might be paid had consequent to the claim--DNA testing anyone?--that it was upholstered to "wild Tuscan boar hide"....or "fine Corinthian leather."
He wore a gorgeous, lustrous suit that may have been woven from the pubic hairs of ten thousand angora rabbits. --Simon Hoggart
